Bought a Honda CTX 700D last weekend. Quite a ride.
Will expand on this soon, but here's the real deal. Dual Clutch automatic tranny.. https://www.bennetts.co.uk/bikesocial/news-and-views/blog/honda-dct-bikings-biggest-most-misunderstood-step-forward
It's difinitely a cruiser... foot pegs are way forward. I'm already looking for bolt-on pegs that I can but below my CG for standing in sand or gravel... Wish me luck!

2015 Honda CTX700. I really need to check the VI # to see exactly what it is. The dealer has been around for 50 years but is pretty casual in providing details. Didn't even have an owners manual...
In the first 24 ours I've found probably $1,000 in aftermarket parts I could add. Exhaust, shock, oiler, radiator guard, driving lights, extra brake lights, power strip...
Test drive was almost scary. The fot pegs are WAYYY forward in a cruiser position. I rolled on the throttle and lifted my feet to get on the pegs. Couldn't find them! That will take some miles to get comfy with. Came to a stop and felt like my feet would never get back to the ground from where the pegs are.
Automatic tranny is slick. Rolled from 1st into 2nd and 3rd with no jerk and no hesitation. I didn't use much throttle on that first ride but will apply more when I take it out today. Will add pics and keep you posted.
(Wow... look at that... first post in 12 months!
